Anyone interested in any type of design should see this documentary. Gary Hustwit, below, was there last night at the Corcoran Gallery of Art to introduce his film, as well as answer questions afterward. From toothbrushes to iPhones, “Objectified” http://www.objectifiedfilm.com/ made me more aware of the myriad objects we utilize in the course of a day, some of which we use without any thought whatsoever. From the time we wake up until we retire at night, we come into contact with dozens of carefully manufactured objects that either aid us or hinder us by way of their design. The idea of designing for permanence vs. designing for the moment was also central theme. Nevertheless, each of the designers featured were extremely amusing and offered a glimpse into the minds that create some of the most mundane to the must-have objects of our time.
